ANDERSON STEWART was born September 8, 1837, in Trigg County, Ky. He is
the eighth in a family of nine children born to James and Jemima (Good)
Stewart. The father was born in Virginia, September 30, 1799, and died
February 2, 1872. The mother was born in Virginia, January 2, 1800, and
died October 4, 1876. She is the daughter of John S. Wood. James Stewart
came with his family to Trigg County in 1822. Anderson Stewart was married
December 27, 1859, to Lucy Wood, a native of Georgia. These parents have
two sons and two daughters. After marriage Mr. Stewart worked on a farm,
receiving part of the crop as his compensation. He then lived on a rented
farm for three years. In 1864 he removed to his present farm consisting
of 274 acres and is known as the "Wiley Wilson" farm. Mr. Stewart is a
self-made man, having no advantages in early life for education. He began
without means, but by his industry and close attention to duty, has placed
himself in very comfortable circumstances, and is one of the leading
farmers in the community where he lives. His residence is one of the
finest of his neighborhood, and his farm is well stocked; his out-buildings
are commodious and well arranged; his farm is located one and a half miles
from Cerulean Springs.
